Tanawin Sa Gulod campsite in Tagaytay City

Tagaytay has always been a quick escape from the fast pace of big cities, and now that we can enjoy travel and leisure again, Tanawin sa Gulod is one of the many campsites near Metro Manila you should definitely visit.

Ideal for low-key date nights and spontaneous road trips, Tanawin Sa Gulod primarily operates as a restaurant that serves quintessential Tagaytay food selections such as bulalo and crispy tawilis.

You can enjoy the cool Tagaytay climate and be amazed by the sunrise and sunset over Taal Lake – start by pitching a tent (P500, ~USD9.77) or camping in your vehicle (P1,000, ~USD19.54) any time since the spot is open 24/7.

However, you must note that spaces are on a first-come, first-served basis.
